The ice class passenger ferry Lomer-Gouin was coated with Ecospeed on the Isle-aux-Coudres in Québec, Canada.

Jastram Technologies Ltd. (JTL) announced it has been appointed agent for Canada for the underwater hull coating Ecospeed and cavitation/corrosion barrier Ecoshield, and for Hydrex underwater repair and maintenance services. JTL will bring wide coverage and a high level of service and support to Hydrex and Ecospeed users and potential users across Canada. 

JTL is a coast to coast Canadian distributor for marine equipment manufacturers, with offices in British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia. JTL customers range from Shipyards to Fleet Managers to end users. In many cases these groups require JTL to work directly with naval architects and marine engineers to assist installation and configuration of the products, and for this reason, the company said it has several engineers on staff as well as sales personnel with technical backgrounds.

Hydrex offers shipowners Ecospeed, an environmentally safe, nontoxic, cleanable underwater hull coating system, with a 10-year guarantee even when sailing in ice, and Ecoshield, the protection from cavitation and corrosion damage for hulls, rudders and underwater running gear.

In addition to Ecospeed and Ecoshield, Hydrex offers turnkey underwater repair and maintenance solutions to ship owners wherever and whenever they are needed, enabling vessels to stay in class and in business without the need for frequent drydocking.

Ecospeed and Ecoshield are produced, distributed and supported by Subsea Industries, a subsidiary of Hydrex NV, based in Antwerp, a global provider of turnkey underwater repair and maintenance solutions and technology.
